Celebration turns to nightmare when psychotherapist Kate Huntington’s guest of honor disappears en route to her own retirement party. Kate’s former boss, Sally Ford, has been kidnapped by a serial killer who holds his victims exactly forty-eight hours before killing them.
With time ticking away, the police allow Kate and her P.I. husband to help with the investigation. The FBI agents involved in the case have mixed reactions to the “civilian consultants.” The senior agent welcomes Kate’s assistance as he fine-tunes his psychological profile. His voluptuous, young partner is more by the book. While she locks horns out in the field with Kate’s husband, misunderstandings abound back at headquarters.
But they can ill afford these distractions. They have to find Sally, before her time expires.
(This book is part of a series but is designed to be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.)
This was by far the most engrossing book in this series to date. Love the authors development of the characters that give you more and more insight in to their psychological strengths and weaknesses with each succeeding story. A very engaging read. I highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.
I really enjoyed the last book in this series, but this one is written in a style that I dislike. In the first chapter, a woman is kidnapped. The rest of the book is a frantic search to find her before 48 hours elapses and she will be killed. I cannot sit on the edge of my chair that long, plus this style tends to minimize character development. I skimmed through a lot of it.
